African Peanut Stew/Soup, chicken recipes, and menu plan

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013 in Blog Posts |

I roasted these two ladies yesterday and have dinner planned for the rest of the week.  (Easy roasted chicken recipe.) This is a slightly more ambitious meal plan than usual. Chickens? Same time/same oven, the one on the left had crispier skin, and overcooked legs (I’m too lazy to truss properly.) I will use the chicken for the soup and enchilada casserole (making two, one for a friend.) I love the casseroles that have all the veggies in them (beans/onions for enchilada, and...

Heavy-duty foil saves clean-up time, and green bean recipe!

I finally made green beans a different way than the usual standby of simmering in broth with a little butter and salt. Husband and I used to eat green beans like this often, but they can be stringy, so when I started cooking and considering the oral skills of a little one, I switched to the softer boiled/steamed beans and kind of got stuck— but stuck in a good way since we all loved them anyway. Roasted garlic/ginger/sesame green beans   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time 20...

I love winter food. I love my big red Dutch oven that was a total splurge, that sits on my stove-top and makes me happy. I cook in at twice a week usually, more in the winter.

Smells wonderful! Forgot to defrost the chicken? No worries, throw it in frozen!! I also like that cooking the meat in the...

cheese that stands, doing things differently from our moms, keeping it real…

I wasn’t sure what to make of the new packaging with the shredded cheese that stands on it’s own until Taco Night, when I was happy not to have one more bowl to wash… Turns out I like the cheese that stands alone… Which made me think about how much I love our informal meals, and how I will take anything that helps me get meals on the table. (Within reason. I have yet to find a steam-in-the-bag veggie that seems as good as prepping it myself. But that line is different...

Does your routine help get dinner on the table, or bore you to tears?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2012 in Blog Posts | 14 comments

We parent with routine and structure. Serious structure. Maybe it’s the German in me, or maybe it’s because we have had a relatively easy time of things when we are all rested and have even blood sugar levels…It’s worked well for our home from eating to sleeping. Well last night we had to go to M’s school ‘family science night’ and the pork chops weren’t cooked through, and the mashed potatoes were too milky (I dumped too much in in my...
